Elias Still Troubled By Groin Issues

from Tom Gulitti of Fire & Ice,

Devils forward Patrik Elias said this morning that he doesn’t know if he’ll be ready for the team’s regular season opener on Oct. 3 against Philadelphia because he is still experiencing discomfort in his groin from surgery three months ago.

“I don’t know,” Elias said when asked if he would be ready for the season opener. “I’ve been skating for over three weeks, but it’s not to the extent or the intensity where I want it to be at this point. But, I had issues, I got it fixed and I’m still not 100 percent, so we’re trying to see why I’m not 100 percent. I think that at this point after three months it should be getter better, but it wasn’t just the hip. I also had the adductor problem back then. So it was two separate issues and it takes awhile everything, especially after you fix the hip and the muscle related that takes a little while.”

Elias, who had surgery on June 12 in Vail, Colorado to repair a tear in his labrum and scrape off an impingment in his hip, said he will visit a hip/groin specialist in Philadelphia on Tuesday to get another opinion before moving forward.

Elias took his training camp physical this morning, but was excused from the treadmill test because of his groin. He said his hip feels fine, but he still has discomfort in his adductor muscle in his groin.
